What’s In Your Share This Week? (Spring CSA!)
Most of us can agree that sweet potatoes are hearty and delicious but in addition to being tasty, sweet potatoes are also good for us. They’re a great source of vitamins E and C and are rich in iron and potassium! To store sweet potatoes, keep them in a cool, dark, dry and well ventilated space or container.
Pro tip: leave the skin on for an extra boost of fiber.
To get the most fiber without sacrificing flavor, try making Baked Sweet Potato Fries for the whole family to enjoy!

So, what’s new this week?
Our partnership with Common Grain Alliance continues on! This week customers can expect to see Yellow Grits grown in Baltimore County, MD at Migrash Farm.
Ian Hertzmark founded Migrash Farm in 2014 to grow and process high-quality produce using traditional and adapted human-scale methods.
Tips on how to store and more:
Reid’s Yellow Dent Corn is a heritage field corn from Illinois. It is rich in flavor, high in protein and carotenoids, and silky in texture. Reid’s is an adaptable and dependable crop that continues to stand well in our oft challenging Mid-Atlantic growing seasons.
Fresh stone-ground grits should be stored in a sealed bag or container in the refrigerator or freezer. These golden gems include healthful germ and bran and should be considered perishable.
To get the best yellow grits possible, visit the Spring 2022 Grain Share page for recipes!
